Later, as a teenager, Marjane (now the voice of Chiara Mastroianni) finds her own ways to rebel–until her parents send her to a boarding school in Vienna. Feeling stranded, Marjane returns to Iran but suffers more under the mullahs and, finally, leaves for France when she is 24 and finds a better life.
